This Melges 32 Backstay Control Line has the cover stripped back and buried at the ends. The two core tails 18 (tails are 3-1/2 in long each for easy splicing) from the bury are marked for you for ease of splicing. You will need to splice the Dyneema cores together (using a simple 12-strand splice and bury) once the line is reeved through your blocks on the boat.
The line used for this configuration is a high performance, Yale Maxibraid Plus. It features a UHMWPE Spectra core that has been proven to offer high working loads, low stretch, high abrasion resistance, zero water absorption and UV stability. APS is the only distributor for this solid, color-coded line, and we recommend it all of the time. Its solid color cover will be easily identified in high-pressure situations and the TST (Thin Sleeve Technology) construction is durable and runs smoothly through blocks.
